Accrington Stanley 3 Daggers 1

Dagenham and Redbridge fell to a dissapointing 3-1 defeat away to Accrington Stanley.

Following Tuesday’s 2-2 draw at York City, Daggers named an unchanged line-up for the first time this season.
The visitors fell behind to a goal from Stanley captain Seamus Conneely who scored after a Josh Windass corner was not cleared.
Stanley were controlling the play and Daggers were saved from going further behind in the 20th minute by a stunning stop from Liam O’Brien.
The keeper got acrobatically tipped the ball over following a Billy Kee volley to ensure the gap remained only one.
Five minutes later O’Brien got down low to save from Piero Mingoia while Josh Passley blocked a follow up effort from Sean McConville.
The hosts continued to create chances and had their second on the stroke of half time when Matty Pearson headed in a corner.
It was a harsh goal on O’Brien who had been exceptional in the first half, preventing Accrington deservedly leading by a lot more.
Four minutes after the break, Josh Windass made it three as he headed home Mingoia’s cross from the right.
Dagenham were able to pull one back and had themselves a lifeline in the 61st minute when Nyron Nosworthy scored his first goal for the club.
Half time replacement Jodi Jones broke down the right and tricked his way into the box before crossing for Nosworthy to tap home.
But that proved to be nothing more than a consolation as Daggers continue to look for a second league win.
